Overview:

Newtel had already converted a small, terrace building with shared rear car park area, directly on the esplanade at St Peter Port into a small data centre and general offices, when an existing client requested a dedicated room for approx. 38 racks @ a heat rejection / IT power load of over 120kW. Besides the usual data centre fit-out works, the existing UPS system needed replacing for a new N+N configuration, 3 new 65kW (N+1) close control air-conditioning was required and a new diesel generator.

Timeframe:

From appointment to completion of the works was less than 16 weeks which was on time and below budget.

Challenges:

There were a number of challenges with the project, not least the limited internal space for the computer room, lack of plant room space for the new UPS’s and switchgear and where to locate the new generator and air-conditioning condensers.

The Solution:

Saradan came up with a unique configuration for the generator and condensers within a double stack steel frame and louvered façade at the rear of the site that had to meet local planning restrictions / requirements.
